My brother got me the Happy Hooker book for a present a while back and so I used it to teach myself how to crochet. I don't really know exactly what I'm doing, so I improvise a lot. The result is that I made an In Bloom bag using the flower from the Garden Scarf instead of the loom flower for that pattern:
I also used the basic pattern of the Orange You Glad bag, but instead of doing it the way that the book tells you to, I just used black and white yarn at the same time to make this bag:
These are my first 2 purses (my first anything except scarves, actually). I hope they don't look as amateurish as they are...
Oh! And any advice would be superwelcome!
